I started out coding, eventually had juniors join me, but from scratch, in VB6 (C# was not yet released), on South Africa's first online mortgage origination and real estate listing system. It became so successful that it was investigate by our Competition Commission as the was possible collusion with all the big banks to use only my system.

It was also my very first paid gig, and when I finished there, some two years later, I started work at bank, on their application that receives mortgage applications from my old system. Then I rewrote the app from VB6 into C#.
"'Do what thou wilt...' is to bid Stars to shine, Vines to bear grapes, Water to seek its level; man is the only being in Nature that has striven to set himself at odds with himself."
